Glad to see the Rect, Angl, and Divided in there.  Those have been my go to for most tones.  Hopefully the HX models are even nicer, and I *REALLY* hope the noise from the HD Pro has been solved.  That was the only thing that turned me off about that unit.

If you're curious what the amps are, look at your HD500 and add a few more.

I'm really having a hard time getting excited about the same models I've had for three years, plus a few extras. The hype machine at L6 is working overtime though. It's a pretty looking unit too.

I genuinely WANT to be excited about Helix. But the lack of honest knob-twisting demos concerns me. Give it to someone that isn't an L6 lollipopkisser and let them put it through its paces with multiple speakers/amps and show us what it sounds like raw. I understand that this isn't how advertising works, but it helps those that (like me) want more honest insight

 I understand that this isn't how advertising works, but it helps those that (like me) want more honest insight

That actually is how advertising works.  But there is no more actual advertising anymore it has been all but replaced by marketing, and marketing is fueled by (stretching the truth, and/or omission of details) as long as the bottom line is increase in potential profits. This major hype train that almost every product tries to utilize isn't advertising, its marketing. Same for all the car commercials, that talk more about "what your lifestyle could be like with the vehicle," than the damn vehicle itself. This is yet another symptom of a completely obsolete socio-economic system.

 

That being said I am extremely excited for the Helix. I hope the hype is well deserved, and that is why I, like you, want to see more indepth reviews on the sounds themselves, many different kinds. Not several weeks put into some plexi demonstration, and a couple of days on a one-cheeked heavy tone....

You won't get away from the Line 6 company line until they release it for purchase and it gets into the users hands... Even when released to reviewers prior to general release, do you think they'd give it to a L6 hater for review? Kinda doubt it.... The real test is the users who actually buy the thing and run it in the real world, so unfortunately there has to be someone willing to buy it right away on faith/hope that it is what it's advertised/marketed to be, then report their true experience. No way around it.
